Thank you for your interesting post. My apologies for delay in responding - I had not looked at the History board until today.

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to the question! I am still working my way through the (talking) book and I think I'm going to buy a copy for myself - the one I have is borrowed from RNIB. the author seems to be steeped in knowledge of her subject - she was on a 'Great Lives' Radio 4 programme recently acting as an expert witness on the subject of Herodotus.
How interesting that you can trace your ancestors back so far
